Throughout 2017-2018 Newsham Primary School will be highlighting the status of reading and introducing some new systems to raise standards of achievement in this area.  Please help us by reading regularly with your child at home and supporting us with any initiatives that require your involvement.  Research clearly shows that children who read regularly do better than others in all curriculum areas and go on to achieve the best results at GCSE level.  The difference you make now as parents and carers really does affect your child’s performance throughout their entire school career!
